WHAT’S NEW WITH SAGE BUSINESSWORKS 2011!
The practical enhancements of Sage BusinessWorks 2011 deliver powerful functionality that makes accounting processes a breeze.
Once you install Sage BusinessWorks 2011, you’ll be pleasantly surprised with the overall experience. It’s now compatible with the new 64-bit operating systems, which are standard on the latest PCs. This allows you to take advantage of various options for improved speed and performance.
Setting up new users is easier than ever. Thanks to a new option in the setup process for new users, the administrator now has the option to default new users to all access or no access to the system, saving time and reducing the likelihood of a security breach.
Want to improve employee satisfaction? The expanded direct deposit distributions capability allows employees to choose to distribute direct deposit payroll wages to an unlimited number of bank accounts.
You can view more bank deposit or reconciliation transactions without scrolling, since the screen size and resolution change based on the number of transactions in the list. You don’t need to reposition the screens, because they are displayed higher on your monitor, too.
If you’re looking for a purchase order, you can find any purchase order more quickly by typing the PO number in the new Quick Find field on Maintain Purchase Orders and Purchase Order Inquiry.
Set aside your calculator. Manual calculations are virtually eliminated with the addition of new totals and subtotals to the Payroll Tax Deposits screen. Now, your total tax liability for OASDI, Medicare and SUI taxes automatically appear. This saves time and reduces the potential for errors when electronically filing tax payments.
Navigation is easier, too. Thanks to the ability to undock panels from the left pane of the launcher, you can access shortcuts, start-ups and modules using only the Button Bar. You can also move the panes wherever you like on the desktop.
Sage BusinessWorks 2011 lets you search for employees by the last 4 digits of their social security numbers. Then, add them to Custom Reports, Custom Exports and Crystal Reports® while still protecting sensitive employee information. A new filter option in the State Tax Report also lets you exclude employees with no year-to-date activity. This eliminates the need to print pages of terminated or inactive employees.
A new Print Pick Ticket button lets you print pick tickets from the Maintain Sales Orders screen, eliminating the need to navigate to the Print Pick Ticket task and automatically populating the setup screen with your order information.
The redesigned Post Receipts Interface allows you to post receipts with fewer mouse clicks. From a single screen, you can select invoices to pay from a populated list and even select multiple invoices for swift distribution of payments.
In addition, thanks to a New button on the User Reports Manager, you can simply select a standard report to use as a template to create a new report. Click the New button to get a blank design screen, with tables and links pre-populated based on the report you select. This eliminates the necessity to first delete fields from the report.
Got recurring invoices? You don’t need to print and mail any more. A new email button added to the Print Recurring Invoices task lets you email recurring invoices directly to the customer email addresses you have on file, using the electronic forms manager.
Got late-paying customers? Rather than run a report, in Maintain Sales Orders, you’ll get a warning message or optional restriction on order entry when a customer has one or more past-due invoices.
Further, if your Business Partner creates customized reports for you, the new Import/Export New Reports feature lets you import a report created in a remote location and copy to a CD or thumb drive, or attach to an email.
If you haven’t upgraded to the latest version of Sage BusinessWorks, you may be missing dozens of new and enhanced features that can streamline your business processes — and save you time and money.
